Tirecare Sealant

Emergencies are something that nobody would want to experience if possible, because it always calls for an immediate intervention to prevent the urgent problem from getting worse and escalating further, therefore it is something that everyone should be adequately prepared for. In cycling, getting a puncture mid-race or even halfway through your trail thrills or in your group ride is also one such emergency, nothing spoils your rhythm and pace like a sudden puncture in your tyres halfway through the ride, then you would have to stop and pull up to the side of the road, get off your bike and try to repair the puncture as quick as possible without wasting any more time, or you could have dropped off your group ride, or wasting your group mates’ time while you try to fix the flat, frustrated.

Colnago C-RS

High performance Italian bike manufacturer Colnago was founded in 1952 by Ernesto Colnago who opted to work in the bicycle industry when he was a teenager instead of working at his family’s farm.  His brief stint in road racing was abruptly cut short due to injuries from a bad crash while racing, therefore turning to being a racing mechanic for some of the best cycling teams in the 50s and early 60s, all while still building steel frames for the cycling industry.  The 70s was a boom time for Colnago as they started mass producing bikes for the American market too and were producing huge volumes of bikes to meet the demands of a constantly growing market.  Their bikes still continue to win world championship races until today, beginning from the early 80s, including the historical rainbow jersey win by Giuseppe (a.k.a. Beppe) Saronni in 1982 at the UCI Road World Championships in Goodwood, Great Britain.  Frame materials also advanced along the way from the traditional steel tubes to aluminum and titanium until the strongest and lightest carbon fibre materials used to manufacture some of the best performing road racing bikes in the world today.

The Cyclist Choice Awards 2016 : Piston Cycle, Piston Racing Road Wheelsets

Piston Racing Road WheelsetsProbably not many of us local cyclists have ever heard of the cycling brand Piston Racing, but for those who have heard of this brand before, they should be aware that they make affordable and great quality wheelsets for both road and off road bikes, as well as other accessories like  wheel accessories and their superbly comfortable silicone bar tapes.  I personally am using their Silicone bar tapes and they are not only very comfortable to hold while riding as it really absorbs quite a bit of vibrations from the road, but the tackiness and feel of the tape is just right, even when wet.  I recently got caught in a very heavy downpour while riding overseas and due to the lack of any cover or shelter within sight, I decided to just continue riding on in search for the nearest shelter , and while riding in the rain, there was still plenty of grip with the tape and handlebars, even when riding on the hoods.

CEMA Ceramic Bearing Bottom Bracket

For anyone who knows the purpose and advantages of using bearings, then they should also be aware that friction between two surfaces that is in contact with each other is the last thing that we would want, therefore contact surfaces employ the use of bearings to reduce the friction between the two moving surfaces, and bearings not only reduce friction, but also minimize wear and tear as well so that the surfaces can last longer.  bicycles mostly use cartridge type bearings which is basically a bearing assembly that can be entirely removed and replaced if necessary, so that the only contact surfaces that are constantly moving against each other is the ball bearing and it's shell or body, and these can be cheaply and readily replaced instead.

Gods of Repair

Singapore, though not exactly big, is a hub for almost everything, and with the high density of bike shops all over the island, it’s no surprise we are also a hub (effectively) for some of the best repair work you can get in the world, if not some say JB and Batam. Just like us, when we are ill, we head down to the family doctors, but when serious issue crops up, we head straight into the hospitals. So you may wonder after all our hard work searching amongst the best of the best mechanics on the island, who deserves the title of “God”? Fret not while we bring you around island and highlight the final shortlist!
